With offices in over 20 countries around the world, F5 offers many different attractive work environments. Here's a sampling of cities that just might be the perfect match for you and a new job with F5.
Seattle is an outstanding place to live, work, and play. At our corporate headquarters in the heart of the city, F5 employees enjoy views of snow-capped mountains and the glistening waters of Puget Sound. At lunchtime, they can hop a bus, or walk, to Seattle's world famous Pike Place Market.
The Seattle office is home to our flagship load balancing product, BIG-IP. The innovative, award-winning BIG-IP device delivers high availability, improved performance, application security, and access control-all in one unit. It's also extraordinarily flexible and configurable.
At our Seattle office, we recruit software engineers, testers, and support engineers, as well as non-technical operational and sales positions such as accountants, office administrators, and sales managers.
The newly expanded F5 Hardware Development Center is located in Liberty Lake, just a few minutes outside of Spokane. Here on the woodsy Washington/Idaho border, F5 employees enjoy fresh mountain air and a noticeable absence of traffic congestion. The Spokane area boasts over seventy lakes and hundreds of miles of bike and hiking trails. There's also plenty of nearby skiing, snowboarding, backpacking, and other outdoor activities.
F5's Spokane (Liberty Lake) office is devoted to hardware platform development, technical support management, and network support engineers. Our team there designs systems that are purpose built to maximize value to our customers. These systems are a combination of networking, computer design, and ASIC/FPGA.
In developing these platforms we employ many of the engineering disciplines. So we're always on the lookout for talented electrical/computer engineers, ASIC/FPGA engineers, mechanical engineers, software engineers (low level firmware and driver development) and manufacturing test engineers.
We probably don't need to tell you that San Jose is home to the largest concentration of technology expertise in the world-more than 6,600 technology companies employing some 245,000 people. Nicknamed the Capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose is a city that both works hard and plays hard. It also gets lots of sunshine and is appealingly close to San Francisco, the Napa-Sonoma wine country, the Monterey Coast, and Lake Tahoe.
F5's newly remodeled San Jose office, easily accessible by local transit, is located in the heart of San Jose, near the upscale Santana Row shopping district (Northern California's answer to Rodeo Drive). We're proud to say our sales and marketing presence is growing in this region as our core production development team works on emerging markets in application acceleration, virtualization, and security. Specific technologies we focus on are next-generation application networking and security, algorithmic optimizations, data center virtualization, emerging remote access security models, XML/SOAP switching, and advanced threat management systems.

Lowell and its surrounding communities are a great place to live and work. Just twenty-five miles from Boston, it's an easy reverse commute to Lowell.

Our Lowell office is home base for our industry leading file virtualization product development team working on the award-winning ARX product suite. F5's ARX virtualization products are the undisputed market leaders in the rapidly growing file virtualization market. Key technologies we focus on include virtualization, file systems, remote file access protocols (NFS & CIFS), IP networking, Linux systems programming, XML/Soap, C++, and Java.
Our ARX® products integrate seamlessly into existing Network Attached Storage (NAS), Windows®, UNIX® and Linux environments. These devices provide industry-leading scalability, performance, and reliability, and are specifically designed to meet the needs of enterprise storage environments.

The stunning beaches, trendy restaurants and bars, thriving nightlife, shops, and historic neighborhoods attract tourists and young people.
With its many museums, art galleries, performing arts, markets, shopping malls, and sports events, there is never of a lack of entertainment in Tel Aviv. For kids, there are many amusement parks and waterparks. The city also hosts festivals and events almost every weekend.
